TIN BOX FLOGGER Dell revealed a 10in tablet aimed at business users today, the Latitude 10.
Running Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 operating system, the Latitude 10 has a 10.1in HD gorilla glass display with 1366x768 resolution, is 10mm thick and weighs 725g.
What's unique about the Latitude 10 is that unlike most tablets it has a removable battery so users can replace it once it reaches the end of its life cycle. It also boasts more connectivity options than your average tablet, with a miniHDMI, full-size USB 2.0, SD card and microSD ports as well as a microUSB charging port and audio jack, along with WLAN and Bluetooth connectivity options as standard.
On the inside, the Latitude 10 is powered by an Intel Atom processor and has 2GB of SDRAM, an Intel graphics media accelerator running at 533MHz, and 128GB of eMMC storage.
Round the back, the tablet has an 8MP camera with autofocus and LED flash. There's also a 2MP camera on the front supporting HD 720p video recording for webcam use.
Dell said that the Latitude 10 allows businesses to bring the fun of tablets to the office securely, as it includes Dell Data Protection security, encrypting all data from the hard drive to the USB port. According to the firm, it will also "fit into current IT environments" because it supports existing Microsoft productivity applications.
The Latitude 10 will launch with an optional Bluetooth keyboard and docking station when it goes on sale in October along with the launch of Windows 8. µ
